Pre-Order My New Record!

tz_msat_albumtype_v1 (dragged)

To everyone who has backed the “More Songs About Time” campaign so far and pre-purchased my new record I’d like to express my sincere gratitude. THANK YOU!!! I truly appreciate your collective help getting this music released. It’s been a long time coming.

I still have more to do before the album will be in your hands (and hopefully your ears) this spring. The Indiegogo page will continue to run through the spring. It is the primary way to PRE-ORDER the music, in whatever format you like. Any additional funds raised will continue to offset funds already spent making the album, and also be put toward preparing for it’s release, including a show (TBA) at SPACE Evanston in early June.

The record’s LP artwork is nearing completion; the CD as well. The audio files for all formats will be triple-checked before sending them on for manufacturing. Lastly in late winter I will cull together & master the bonus tracks/demos.

You’ve planted a seed; in the spring you’ll receive the record!

If you are still on the fence about buying it in advance I hope you’ll consider doing so. It is much appreciated.

Peace & love to all of you,

Tommi Zender


New Album: More Songs About Time


Hello Everyone!

I’m very pleased to announce my new record: More Songs About Time. It’s my first in 15 years; 10 songs recorded in a great studio, and I’m truly excited about it. I need YOUR HELP getting the record manufactured. It’s due for Spring 2019 release (late April/early May).

I’m launching an Indiegogo funding campaign. This is the first one of these I’ve ever done. Please visit the link to learn more about the record! There is a quick video, and a written synopsis about the project.

Please consider PRE-PURCHASING the work to help me fund it.

There are many special “perks’ available. Perks include the album in the format(s) of your choice, bonus outtake materials (acoustic & instrumental versions, unreleased songs) original demos for the LP, TINY HOUSES!, help with IKEA furniture, my help with your music, private lessons, a private house concert & more!

Please feel free to share the Indiegogo campaign link with others. THANK YOU for your interest and support of this work. I think it’s a quality record most of you music-lovers will enjoy.
